Joanne Holloway is the research entomologist for field crops in southern New South Wales. She is also the leader of the Stored Grain Research Unit in Wagga Wagga.


After completion of her PhD, studying the ecophysiology of sugar gliders, Joanne was employed as a Professional Officer at the University of New South Wales. Research during this time involved investigating adaptations of a wide range of native animals, from red kangaroos to Christmas Island crabs, to the environment.


Joanne joined NSW Agriculture (now NSW DPI) at Wagga Wagga Agricultural Institute in 2002 as a Research Entomologist. Since then her research has focused on the identification and management strategies to avoid chemical resistance in stored grain insects, and integrated pest management of insects in broadacre field crops.
